Chicago's Kinzie Hotel launches in-room dining program

Meals are made-to-order in the kitchen at Public House, then delivered fresh to the guestroom at Kinzie.

The Kinzie Hotel in Chicago has launched an exclusive in-room dining program in partnership with its neighbor, Public House. The independent boutique hotel’s “Chicago Starts Here” mantra is underscored in this new alliance with Public House, a signature Chicago gastropub that has become a River North fixture since opening in 2011. Guests of Kinzie Hotel can now enjoy Chef Jeremy Tannehill’s upscale, smoke-inspired pub fare without leaving the comfort of their hotel room.

“We’re excited to partner with Public House, another local business with a strong Chicago identity,” said the General Manager of Kinzie Hotel, Andrew Eck. “What sets Kinzie apart from other hotels in the city is an interpersonal Chicago connection in terms of services and amenities.” 

Chef Jeremy Tannehill oversees the kitchens at both Public House and its sibling, Bull & Bear. A slightly modified version of Public House’s lunch and dinner menus are available to all Kinzie Hotel guests (with future plans to include alcoholic beverages), whether it’s for an individual traveler or a group function. Meals are made-to-order in the kitchen at Public House, then delivered fresh to the guestroom at Kinzie. Examples of signature dishes include:
